Do you know what it means
to miss New Orleans?

Mardi Gras 2013 - 12 February


"Leaving New Orleans also frightened me considerably. Outside
of the city limits the heart of darkness, the true wasteland begins."

~ Ignatius J. Reilly from 'A Confederacy of Dunces'

Have a heart! Help your fellow man...


“New Orleans is jazz, easy livin’, the blues – and ‘When the Saints
Come Marchin’ In’. It’s Bourbon Street, St. Charles Avenue, and
a street called Desire. It’s the ghosts of Satchmo, Lillian Hellman,
and Tennessee Williams [and Truman Capote]. It’s Mardi Gras,
strippers, strong coffee, bars that never close, live oaks, and
magnolias. It’s uptown society and downtown artists. But then
New Orleans is also terrific food… really wonderful food as it
is evolving in this truly magical city…”
~ Lee Bailey, in Lee Bailey’s New Orleans

La Belle Cuisine


"I lived near the main street of the quarter which is named Royal.
Down this street, running on the same tracks, are two streetcars, one
named Desire and the other named Cemetery.  The indiscourageable [sic]
progress up and down Royal struck me as having some symbolic bearing
of a broad nature on life in the Vieux Carre -- and everywhere else,
for that matter."
Tennessee Williams, 1940
